    Tight Bleeder Nipple

    Looks like I'm only a year late, maybe I need to stop drinking ... or drink a lot more.

    They make special vice grips that grip 3 sides of a hex head. they work on the hose fittings, don't tighten them to much they will crush the fittings. Use a 6 point socket on the bleeders and be careful thay are easy to brake. Use lots of penetrating oil.

    240Z Drivers Side Door Slam Or Quarter Panel

    kamarchi it will be a few days before I will be able to get back out where the car is, my grand kids are staying with my wife and me. I will get some more pictures and poke at the seam with a screwdriver to see if is any good. Do you have a picture of the part that you want cut ?

    Gavin, you may want to look closer at the firewall pic. It looks different RHD vs LHD.

    It may be a few days before I can get any more pictures, Gavin what part of the firewall do you need? gilltech I have never seen one like it either, it may not be factory.

    The roof is off and good. I still have it. I bought the car for the firewall to repair my car. The battery tray looks good but may have rust in the seam I won't know until I remove it. I was going to try to use most of the firewall but have backed off that idea and will only be using parts of it. What part do you need?

    Tabco makes rockers and rear wheel archs that fit well. https://tabcoparts.com/cars/datsun/240z-260z-280z-1970-1978.html Good Luck It doesn't look to rusty and looks like it is well worth fixing.

    Gavin the panel is junk, I went out to the country where the car is to get so pictures and saw a crack in the bog so I peeled it off and there is no metal under it so the whole bottom is junk. The US passenger side door slam, and inner panel is not as nice as the other side but may be usable. The front battery area is good.

    Gavin I think most of the rust is where the bumper mounts on both sides, and the slam panel and two small spots under the slam. The bottom is covered in bog but doesn't look rusty. It doesn't look as bad as the one you have been working on but you never know what you have till you get the parts off. I had been watching your repair progress and was thinking about trying to fix this panel when I have more time.

    Yes that's it.The valence is rusty but you said you would consider anything.The door frame and inner panel look good but the dog leg is rusty. How much do you need? I'll try to get some pictures if your interested.

    Do you have a picture of the part you need? I may have it on a 73 parts car. The only drawback is it's in the US.
